Java8 The Good Parts @ JavaOne 2013

Posted by Konrad 'ktoso' Malawski on 23/09/2013 – 21:12;

Just yesterday I gave a presentation together with Andrzej Grzesik, with whom we (and more friends!) organize GeeCON and the PolishJUG among other things.

This is our first time at JavaOne, and right away we got a full room of developers, eager to learn about the new stuff in JDK8. I have to admit, being a Scala guy since quite a few years, presenting about Java 8 felt a bit weird, but I’m still very happy about it – especially the JVM changes which allowed Java 8 and it’s Lambdas to happen. All these changes will not only make Java developer lives easier (less-painful), but also allow our Scala code to become loads faster! :-)

The slides from the talk are online here:

Oh, and it seems that if you link to http://oracle.com/technetwork/java/, which is the OTN website, you get a free t shirt, yay!

    I know it’s polisbse to embed JavaFX into Swing using the JFXPanel. I’ve tried it and it seems to work just fine. However, I’d like to know if it is polisbse to do the opposite, embed Swing into JavaFX. IMO this would facilitate the migration from Swing to JavaFX. I use many COTS in Swing and I can’t know if they will ever make it to JavaFX. Am I stuck with Swing for ever?Regards

    I believe it is possible, but have not looked into it (been on deep backends for the last years of my career). Think might help maybe? http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/8/embed_swing/jfxpub-embed_swing.htm
